“What can you say world class theater in San Diego at a price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The theater is excellent, puts on world class plays. The cast are amazing and they have a celebrity cast draw. You can often see major stars performing in the plays here. The physical plant is excellent as well. The only issue is that the ticket prices are high. I guess you get what you pay for.

“Outdoor theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We saw an excellent production of "Rosencrantz and Guidenstern are Dead" at the Summer Shakespeare Festival's outdoor theater. The seats were comfortable. Come prepared for a cool evening; the theater rents blankets if you need them.

“Best Acoustics, No "bad" seats!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Each theatre season presents a wide variety of excellent live performances in one of 3 different settings. The theatres are located in beautiful Balboa Park. The summer Shakespeare Festival is held in an outdoor setting. The rest of the season uses the two remaining theatres, which contain virtually no "bad" seats. The productions are always extremely professional, with wonderful sets, directors and actors with national reputations, and wonderful talent. If you enjoy live theatre, don't miss a chance to see a show at the Old Globe Theatre while in San Diego.
